Texans awarded Kendall Sheffield, Connor Wedington off waivers

The Texans were awarded cornerback Kendall Sheffield and wide receiver Connor Wedington off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers, according to a league source.

The Texans waived-injured undrafted safety Kolby Harvell-Peel and released defensive back Reggie Robinson, a former Dallas Cowboys player. If Harvell-Peel goes unclaimed off waivers, he reverts to injured reserve.

Sheffield is a former Falcons fourth-round draft pick from Ohio State.

He's heading into the final year of a four-year, $3.3 million rookie contract.

He's due a $965,000 base salary.

Sheffield had four tackles in nine games in 2021 with no interceptions.

A Thurgood Marshall graduate and Missouri City native, Sheffield has 101 career tackles.

Wedington is a former undrafted free agent from Stanford where he was teammates with Texans starting quarterback Davis Mills.
